Self-programmed plug-ins can be used with all editions of CAD6, including the free CAD6starter.

If you wish to pass on your solution to your partners with more flexibility and style, we offer CAD6engine as a custom-made edition of CAD6 made only for you at a flat fee – personalized with your company name if you like – plus an installation data package that already contains your plug-ins. You may pass that on to others, e.g. to your customers.
